Saw this article in my feed. Thought it would make a good addition in this thread.

If you want a rock-solid tripod for long exposures, and have the physique of Special Forces active duty, this may be the tripod for you...

I used to set up tripods like that for survey crews as a summer job. They're actually a lot lighter than you might think, and incredibly sturdy. They're also easy to set perfectly level. Downside, I'm not sure you can attach a ball head to it.

Is that for a camera or an anti-aircraft cannon mount?  :icon_lol:
